Paul Dunne keeps momentum going with impressive start to Alfred Dunhill Links

Paul Dunne keeps momentum going with impressive start to Alfred Dunhill Links

"I was delighted with how my first tournament went in Portugal last week and I hope I can do as well at St Andrews. It was a disappointing finish, but, in general, all things feel good and life is pretty good at the minute".

This year spectators will also be able to enjoy food and beverages at Rusacks Hotel, on Pilmour Links, adjacent to the 18th fairway of the Old Course.

The world No 6 made an encouraging start with a birdie at the first, but he ran up a scrappy double-bogey six at the next after running into bunker trouble, and then missed chances to fix the damage as he found the greens and the stiff breeze hard to judge. He now has mixed feelings about that championship.

'Golf is probably the most complicated sport you could choose and I'm so happy I'm not doing it for a living!' he said.

'So hopefully on the first tee I'll have my first shot and hopefully it's going to sit well now as a retired athlete I'll hopefully have more time to spend on a golf course'.

"It was one that slipped away, but something that set up my professional career as well".

At Kingsbarns, Colsaerts recovered from his poor third hole by claiming birdies at four of the next five holes.

Fresh from his maiden victory in Newcastle, the Irishman's good form continued as he fired a five-under-par 67 at St. Andrews - one of three courses being used for this week's European Tour event.

World number six Rory McIlroy - who was playing alongside his father Gerry in the concurrent pro-am competition - ended the day one over after shooting 73 at St Andrews.

McIlroy was 3 over before he finished with birdies at the 14th and 18th.

Dunne made the turn in 32 thanks in part to an eagle at the par-four ninth, where he holed from 22 feet.
